Oval playpens are a nice alternative for people who like gentle shapes. These pretty models are somewhat reminiscent of cots, yet still offer all the features of a playpen. They are particularly suitable for rooms where a round playpen would take up too much space. Oval playpens fit well into corners and look equally great if positioned in the middle of the room. Different materials, from wood to plastic or metal, provide the perfect match to the existing furniture or can provide a great visual complement.
